Fit Friday: West Paw Zogoflex Air Dash and Glycoflex Plus Giveaway Winner

WestPaw Review-6293

This month, I had the pleasure of reviewing the West Paw Zogoflex Air Dash frisbee toy for

WestPaw Review-6067

West Paw is an American company based in Montana who concentrates on making high quality, safe, and durable toys for dogs. The Zogoflex Air Dash is basically a frisbee made out of the Zogoflex material used in many of the West Paw toys.

The Air Dash is a bit on the heavier side, which takes a bit to adjust to when you first throw it. But it isn't so heavy as to be hard to throw or overly awkward.

Were Pallo a bit more talented, and the human a bit better at throwing, I am sure that some good air catches could be done with this disc. It isn't what I would use for doing freestyle disc competitions or anything, just due to the weight. But, I think it makes a great all-around play toy for most dogs.

In addition to your normal tosses in a field, the Air Dash floats, so you can use it in the water too.

The wavy build of this disc is something I really like. On land, it allows the dog to pick it up when it lands right side up without having to scratch and paw at it like with a normal disc. It also makes it more visible in the air, which I think would make it easier for a dog to see for a mid-air catch.

In water, the wavy design means that the disc floats a little higher in some places, making it easier for a dog swimming to spot it.

With a little practice, it is easy to get this disc to go where you want it, which makes me think it would be a good toy for dock diving, especially for those humans who have trouble throwing other toys very far, since as a disk it naturally goes farther than different types of toys.

Overall, I was a big fan of the Air Dash. Even after a full session of play, it had not a single mark from teeth.

And, Pallo really seemed to enjoy playing with it. He happy retrieved it both on land and in the water, and I think he had a really good time.

I'd certainly consider purchasing one of these in the future if this one were to get lost, or get a second one for Koira. I would probably go for the Currant color for Koira, though. The Dandelion color (which is here) matches Pallo's lifejacket, and the Currant would match Koira's lifejacket. There is also a third color option, Peacock, if you don't like the Dandelion or Currant. 

And then, what you've all been waiting for: The winner of the Glycoflex Plus giveaway I posted last Friday is Steve McComb, whose two dogs Chaos and Navy could both use a new supplement after a hip surgery on Chaos a few years ago, and Navy with four knee surgeries. I hope they enjoy!


  1. The flyer looks easy to pick up and I like that it floats. We have a pond on our property and won't have to worry about it sinking to the bottom.

  2. Looks like fun! I like that it looks easy to pick up too.

  3. That looks great fun what a pawesome toy :) Milo & Jet
